Stack and Bond Automation for Rotor and Stator Cores Manufacturing Application
MetadataShow full item record
The manufacturing process for the core of the electric motors or electric generators starts with the stacking process of core. The main objective in this project is to reduce the manufacturing time and improve the ergonomics on the manufacturing process. This project will be deployed following the DMAIC methodology that consists in five steps (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control). This systematic process of continuous improvement will provide a specific order for implementing the project, which also cover all aspects of the process. Multiple tools were used such as Pareto analysis, process flow and other selected based on the methodology, which to analyze the Stack and Bond process and how it can e improved using an automated system. This project will reduce the manufacturing cost of the product, making the stacked cores more attractive to the future projects. In addition it reduces some the ergonomics issues caused by performing repetitive movements during long periods of time. Key Terms – DMAIC Methodology, Lamination Core, Lamination Notch, Stator Fins.
